My fair baby

fairground

So, my folks and I went to the fair. Of course the little baby came along. She was wonderful. It was very crowded and loud but she really didn’t mind. She people watched and smiled and was just…so happy.

I’ve never been to the fair before – with a child. Usually? I went with friends or solo and noticed the strollers and the screaming children and the ice cream and the humongous stuffed animals in their respective kiosks. I noticed everything but most of all, I noticed my thoughts. I was always so mindful that SOME DAY, I would have a child to go to the fair with. It was a big deal to me.

So this whole going to the fair today was a big deal. Huge. I didn’t notice the kiosks with the stuffed animals (I forgot to look), I didn’t stop for an ice cream, I didn’t see screaming children because they all seemed so content to me. But yes, there were a lot of strollers.

Loads of strollers. And I was one of the army. It was magical. It was a long walk from Lot J to the entrance but I could have walked miles. I was so proud.

Funny how much a year changes.

One year ago to the day, I found out I was pregnant.

    Hi there… I hope that this post is me next year… every September, we have a fair here.. and every September… I see all these families enjoying themselves together… mums with their Bugaboo prams… And every year – I HOPE so hard, that this will be me… yet every year comes along – and I am still going with Hubby, alone…

    Starting another ICSI cycle end of this month – so here’s hoping for a screaming, 3 month old next September fair.

    I am epileptic and no it doesn’t make the child retarded, although it can cause brain damage. It just depends how long the seizure goes for to cause retardation, for example a seizure lasting more than 4 minutes is an emergency and the child should be looked at immediately.

    To add more to details. The baby cried after birth. He had respiratory issues, couldn’t breath without oxygen supply. Now he recovered and could breath without oxygen supply for past 10 days. Still undergoing treatment in NICU. Doctors say he is out of danger, but unable to drink milk when fed using spoon and also he is not crying. I am worried. Can you tell me what is the position of baby now.

    My new born baby boy had Siezures after 30 min. We identified and could start treatment after 4 hrs. Once the treatment started, he never had siezures. He is 14 days old now. Does this effect his brain. Is he going to be Mentally Retarted.

    My baby is almost a month old & she is very fair skinned and her hair is even a blondish-white color…. I thought she would start changing, but she hasnt yet. she looks like a white baby only her skin gets very splotchy when i bathe her. why is this? her dad is a medium color.
